Balmy Summer Weather Returns to Mitzpe Ramon

As mid-summer approaches, the nights have returned to their delightful summer time best. Tonight's temperature was 72* F with a light wind out of the Northwest and dark skies all around, until the 3/4 moon rose around 11:30PM. We observed Saturn, a perennial favorite, the moon, the Lagoon Nebula and the beautiful gold and turquoise double star Alberio in the constellation Cygnus, the Swan.  The Milky Way spun overhead. Time to get outside for a star tour. And remember to Keep on lookin' up!
